Fun and entertaining
6 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dude Duck is not my favourite of Donald Duck's cartoons, or quite one of my favourites. But it is fun and entertaining, with beautiful animation, vibrant colours and fluid backgrounds are both on sight here, and energetic scoring with the opening bars(excluding the catchy title song) almost reminiscent of the part of the William Tell overture where it sounds like dawn has arrived. Duke Duck is very funny too, I have been more imaginatively and crisply timed Donald Duck cartoons, but I did love Donald's facial expression as he walks up to the horses and the last minute or so is very amusing, but for me the best part was when Rover Boy was pretending to be a cow. The story is routine but still maintained my interest, and both characters are just great, I just wish endearing Rover Boy was in more cartoons and Donald as always shines with his charm and temperament. Clarence Nash is as bravura as ever as the voice of Donald. In conclusion, a fun, entertaining cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
